    Thought I'd just tag this on here for want of a better place seeing as we're talking about UFC contracts and Fedor vs Randy.

    This was posted on another forum re Fedor's UFC contract:

    Without the UFC's pre-approval, he:
    - Can't give ANY interviews
    - Can't appear in TV or film
    - Can't do any sponsorships or advertisement
    Additionally:
    - He can be released if he loses one fight
    - He had to fight 8 times in two years
    - If he is undefeated at the end of his contract, he gets automatically extended for an UNSPECIFIED amount of time, at the SAME compensation
    Additionally, he said they had come to terms and had a verbal agreement, only to receive a totally different contract in the mail.
    Anyone else know if this is true or not? If so it sounds like a royal buttfuck of a contract and no wonder he didn't sign.

    You're assuming that Sylvia intends to win this fight with strikes. He will win with the judging.

    Sylvia is the guy who said he could win a title in professional boxing because of his "hand skills" In interviews, he expressed surprise that he didn't KO Vera, and that he would easily KO Mirko or Kongo.

    I'd say he kindof likes winning with strikes.

    Have you watched Sylvia fight? He has a fair number of ko's but in general he wins via decision when facing even decent competition. I'd say Nog is at least decent.

    Militech puts together effective and winning gameplans for timmie, and they don't hinge on ko's.

    Of course. That's often what fighting to not lose results in.

    Sylvia needs to get assassinated, IMO. He'll always be good enough (big enough) at eeking out a decision to stay in contention, so somebody just needs to poison him or snipe him on his way to the ring or something.

    He'd probably beat the bullet on decision or something.

    I'm usually the first to condem Tim for his fighting style (read: when he first got the belt and onwards), but I still have hope that he can be the fighter he used to be, and he was a very dangerous striker at that point.

    That said I like Nog, he's a fairly tough guy with some awesome skills. I'm going for Nog, but at this point I'm not seeing him taking the belt.

    Yeah, I REALLY hope Nog wins, especially after that promo video, but I have a bad feeling that Sylvia will get the decision.
